NO FISCAL IMPACT
January 10, 1998
Steve Tammeus (866-2756)
TITLE: CONCERNING APPOINTMENT OF COUNTY JUDGES PURSUANT TO AGREEMENT OF THE PARTIES.
Summary of Assessment
Current law allows the chief justice to assign any retired or resigned justice or retired or resigned intermediate appellate, district, probate, or juvenile court judge to hear a civil action upon agreement of all the appearing parties. Additionally, one or more of the parties must agree to pay the salary of the selected justice or judge, together with all other salaries and expenses incurred.
This bill allows the chief justice to add a retired or resigned county judge to those who may hear such a civil action. The bill will become effective upon the signature of the Governor.
The bill will not affect state, or local government, revenue or expenditures. Therefore, the bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
